    That is Cool! May I make a suggestion though? Next time you repot put it in a basket. They send their spikes out the sides and bottom and you may be losing more flowers that are being trapped inside the pot and dying. Check out this post!

    Very nice!

    I bought one once and when it arrived it was in a net basket. But it seems like it had just arrived in the USA and was stuffed into the pot and shipped out. When I got it all it ever did was decline and die. It was very fast!

    Chris, thanks for the suggestion. I think I only have bigger size basket. Hopefully it will grown bigger in the next couple years so I can move it back to basket.

    Should you decide to do it sooner, hydroponic stores, for only a dollar or two, carry basket type pots. You could strategically cut out a few of the slats to widen the slots. You can see how much the roots love it in Geoff's post.
